It was decided that MSU and USC would play every year as cross-divisional opponents.

Exciting win that propelled State to a bowl game.

USC went 1-10 in 1998 and Brad Scott was fired. Meanwhile, State won the West.

A loss, but one of the most memorable nights ever at Scott Field.

Tough loss for State in this game. Folks are still scratching their heads about Corey Broomfield on Alshon Jeffrey.
